Object Sensor for Reliable Inspection in Error-Proofing Applications
ifm efector introduces the efector dualis object sensor for object recognition and evaluation in production control. Objects are reliably detected and evaluated - regardless of orientation - with the sensor's 640x480 CMOS image processor. High-performance firmware enables the sensor to find objects with extreme reliability. The sensor detects and compares defined shapes and provides up to five configurable outputs that include counting, sorting, logic functions and pass/fail. An LED display indicates active outputs.
The compact sensor measures only 42 x 45 x 54 mm and incorporates an image sensor, evaluation electronics, and integrated infrared LED lighting in an industrial die-cast housing. The sensor's lighting provides the correct amount of brightness at close range. For longer distances, an external lightsource of any color can be used. Setup is quick via an Ethernet interface and menu-guided PC parameter setting.
ifm efector offers a variety of cable assemblies and mounting components for application setup. The 24 VDC sensor uses a standard industrial M12 cable assembly for electrical connection and an Ethernet cable for software connection.
The efector dualis object sensor provides 100% inspection testing throughout the automation process. The object sensor combines reliable detection, low-cost and simple setup in a compact, durable housing. List price for the sensors is $850.00 (US)and cable assemblies and accessories range from $23.00 to $54.00 (US).
